VINCI St Modwen [VSM] has installed a new temporary artwork at the heart of Nine Elms.
Designed by artist Anna Nicolò, the artwork Buyer’s Walk is a 150 metres long footway connecting the new Nine Elms Tube Station on Wandsworth Road to Ponton Road and the River Thames beyond.
What was a functional path has been reimagined as a colourful, joyous new place of intersection and animation; one which will host and promote a range of pop-up activity in the day or evening, seven days per week for a period of approximately 3 years.
In 3 locations across the length of the path, beautiful ‘Victorian door panels’ (see image above) open to reveal purpose-built, covered alcoves which are approximately 4.5m [l] x 2m [d] x 2.4m [h] with an electrical outlet.
We see these alcoves as spaces to test new ideas, speak directly to consumers, providing much-needed space to local community groups as well as a place to support business, charities and provide (and deliver) seasonal activities.
